CB Sketchbook Club » Layet Johnson
This week’s instructor, Layet Johnson, will introduce cartoon drawing and comic theory as he demonstrates his methods in transforming rough figure sketches into beautifully inked cartoons. As writers edit their prose, participants will learn to revise their cartoons in order to maximize their composition and text in creating powerful and effective single-panel comics. Participants will need paper, a pencil, eraser, pen, and ruler, and a willingness to experiment as we use comics to uncover wonderful new ways of drawing and storytelling.
Join us for an evening of sketching and discussion with our online creative community! Each week guests will be led through an introductory drawing exercise by a guest artist. Grab your sketchbook or some loose paper and a pencil or pen for this hour long class that offers the chance to relax and connect digitally with friends as you explore the creative practice of sketching. Sketching offers the freedom to experiment with materials, themes, and techniques, and to record the things that inspire you!
What You’ll Need:
- 8.5×11 (or larger) paper
- Pencil (HB or softer lead 3B-6B)
- Pen (any ink pen you love to draw with)
- Eraser (white plastic, pink pearl, gum, etc.)
- Ruler (or any straight edge or triangle)
Free, register online or with Guest Services. Once registered, participants will receive an email with information about the event, and the Zoom link.
